Organic Basics is a Copenhagen based brand specialising in underwear, everyday basics and activewear produced with sustainable methods.
The fashion industry is dirty. They put sustainable thinking at the centre of everything – that means they only choose fabrics that care for our environment and they only ever partner with factories that care about their impact, too.
When Organic Basics say sustainability is their core mission they don’t mean that sustainability is nice to have – they mean that it’s the only way we act.
Ethics & Sustainability:
We always partner with factories that produce garments more ethically. We look for certifications like GOTS, SEDEX, SA8000 and more in order to validate that they are making things the right way. For us it’s also about supporting grassroots environmental initiatives through our Organic Basics Fund. We’re a certified 1% for the planet member which means that we dedicate at least 1% of our online sales to environmental causes. Raising awareness of important environmental issues like climate change and lack of biodiversity is also important to us. We’re also looking into how we can support groups working within the intersection of social justice and environmental justice.
Sourcing & Supplier Transparency:
We only work with trusted, certified factory partners – these are the good guys. They have the same sustainable vision as us – and follow it through by continuously reducing their environmental footprint. These factories also ensure that their workplace is free of child labor and forced labor, their workers are surrounded in a safe working space, paid a living wage, offered employee perks like free lunch and childcare – and of course, they are treated with respect at all times.,These are European and Turkish factories that have both environmental and social certifications to ensure that both people and planet are protected.”””
